We have awesome holiday programmes that your child will love!
The YMCA offers children and young people fun and educational activities to keep them happy and active during every school holiday of the year. We run programmes in Upper & Lower Hutt, Porirua, Wellington City and holiday camps at Camp Kaitoke.
The YMCA is a values-based organisation. Our values are honesty, responsibility, respect and caring. These values drive our programme content, how we manage behavior, our commitment to sustainability, and the way we interact with participants, their whanau, our volunteers and staff.
Each holiday day programme and camp offers a varied and interesting variety of activities ranging from trips, art, and craft to sports and games.
There are a variety of ways to book on to the programmes; the fastest way is to book online and pay with your credit card. You can download the brochures view the programme details to the righthand side of this page.
We have Government Approval to run OSCAR programmes, this means two things for you and your children:
1. We have been audited by an external body to ensure that our staffs are all appropriately qualified, trained and supervised. Our programmes are managed well to minimise unnecessary risk, the content and quality of the programmes are appropriate for the age and development of the children/youth involved.
2. You are able to access a subsidy towards the fees from Work and Income NZ (if you are eligible under the ‘Working for Families’ Scheme).
